ootd - Multicoloured

Dress - Primark, Leggings & Boots - Topshop

 Today i wore my Missoni style dress from Primark ! I really love this dress and totally forgot i had it ! I found it laying on my wardrobe floor ! So after rediscovering it i wore it today as the weather was really nice as well !
As usual i have slacking this week ! I once again have been so busy with college ! And have very exciting news as well ! I think i mentioned quite a few posts ago that i was trying to volunteer for a street style website based in Liverpool called Fashion Finds ! Well they got back to me a few weeks ago but with all the stress of starting college i only read the email a few days ago ! And they want me to be a street style photographer for them ! So i have already scoured the streets of Liverpool and sent them a few pics and one of them is featured on their site right now ! With a link to me and my blog underneath it ! It may not seem that exciting to you but to me it is such a big deal :) So i may make it a feature on here to show some of the street style pictures i take ! Would you be interested in that or not ? Let me know !

What I Wore Yesterday

T-shirt & Skirt - H&M, Leggings, Hairband & Boots -Topshop, Necklace - Primark

I realised yesterday that it had been quite sometime since i last did an outfit post ! So here it is ! I was only going to sit in my boyfriends so i just threw some clothes on. I wore my Ramones T-Shirt which i got from H&M a few months ago and surprisingly hadn't got round to wearing it till yesterday. I also wore my new H&M skirt which since i have bought i have been basically living in ! Its so easy to throw on and goes with so many things ! I'm wearing my bird cage necklace from Primark :) Which i adore and am giving one away in my giveaway which ends tomorrow so go enter if you already haven't :)
I also redid my nails in a kind of scrabble style :) I'm loving my nail art pen so much but am running out of idea's now ! Do you have any nail designs you would like me to try out ?

Remington Pearl Wand Review !

So i mentioned a week or so ago i had finally purchased the Remington Pearl Wand after wanting one for quite a while now ! So here is the review on it that i promised :)

This is my hair as i woke up this morning ! Its naturally curly but i had straightened it last night ! 

This is the wand :) It has a on/off button and two buttons to adjust the heat. It starts at 130 degrees and goes up to 210 degrees. It literally heats up in seconds ! The wand comes with a gloved for you to use so that you don't burn your fingers but i find i can't separate my hair properly with the glove on so i am still getting one or two burn't fingers now and again :( The product also comes with a heat proof sleeve to place the wand in after curling :) 

This is my hair after ! Its really curly :) You can achieve bigger curls by using bigger sections of hair but today i felt like tighter curls ! I find that all the other curlers i have used i have to thicken my hair in hair spray to keep the curls in ! I have used this wand quite a few times now and have not used any spray and my curls have stayed in all day and hardly dropped out ! Which is amazing ! I would honestly recommed this to anybody as it is to easy to use and really quick it took about 15 minutes for me to do my hair opposed to the usual hour with my other curlers !! 

I also have a little announcement to make ! Next month i am planning to dye my hair ginger ! I am a little bit scared but have wanted a big change for a while and don't think you can get a bigger change than this ! The only thing i am really worried about is what to do about my eyebrows because they are really dark ! My friend suggested just getting them thinner but i quite like my thick brows ! I am considering just getting them lightened but don't know much about it ! Has anyone had their lighted and can tell me what its like ??
Here is the kind of gingers i am thinking of
What do you think ??

My Week In Pictures :)

I'm sorry i haven't been the best blogger lately ! But i have been a little overwhelmed with the amount of college work i have been given this week ! Promise to be a better blogger this coming week :) 
I have seen a few of these on numerous blogs and have wanted to give it a go myself ! So here it is my week in pictures :)

I am a really big Harry Potter fan and have been trying to convince my boyfriend to take me to orlando to go the new harry potter world ! But it hasn't quite worked :(. But my boyfriend did find a box of Bertie Botts every flavor beans in a new sweet shop !!! I was so excited when he gave me them ! The flavours are a little unusual with things such as Earthworm, Rotten Egg & Soap ! The worst one though was Vomit !! Which i can say i did try and the flavours where pretty much spot on !! Had a bit of fun getting family to taste and guess the flavours though :) definitely recommend them if you can get your hands on them. 

I also won my first blog give away !!! I won this cute little bracelet from Sarah from BeautyInImperfection . Thank you !! I haven't worn it out yet but definitely will this coming week ! Also Considering a 50 Follower giveaway myself ! If i do what would you want from a giveaway for example - jewellery or bath stuff or make up ?? Let me know :) 

 I have also been craving a decal for my mac for a long time ! I originally considered a snow white one which i have seen many other people with. But i then came across a Mr Potato head one ! I love ToyStory so i ordered this and it came this morning !!! What do you think ??

Leopard Print !

Ok so i'm not doing so well with my shopping ban ! I have been dying to buy the Models Own nail art pen for a while now and this weekend i gave in ! This is my first proper attempt at using it ! Already i am in love with it :)
I can't wait to try out different designs and patterns :) I'm already considering buying one in white as well !
I also bought the Remington Pearl Wand as i have been after a wand curler for ages as well and after some great reviews of the Remington one i got it :) I haven't used it properly yet but will post a review myself when i do !
Hope every one had a good weekend !

ootd - Maroon

Dress - Miss Selfridge, Coat - Next, Leggings - Topshop, Hairband - Primark
So i ended up buying the dress from Miss Selfridge ! I really love it ! Its really simple but i think it looks really good on compared to on the picture online. I wore it with my favourite jacket from next, you can't really tell from the picture but its a padded Barbour style jacket which i got last year but they seem to be a big trend for this winter as well so it turned out to be a good buy ! Today the weather was so bad it just seemed to rain all day ! Will have to invest in a good umbrella soon :) 
No wednesday wishes for today ! As i am putting myself on a shopping ban ( god know's how long it will last ) as i don't have that much money to be spending on clothes right now. I also need to start saving for christmas as i have a very long list of people to buy for !
College went well ! I am in the same days as i was last year so i won't feel too muddled up ! And i am in the same class as my friends which is always nice :) I meant to get a picture of what i wore on my first day but by the time i got to my boyfriends ( my usual photographer ! ) that night i looked a mess ! Our new project is on liverpool which is great as thats where i live so i can draw loads of inspiration from just walking around the city :) Will post some work when it gets finished :)

ootd - Last Day Of Summer

Dress, Leggings & Boots - Topshop,  Cardigan - Primark
Today is officially the last day of the summer holidays ! Whilst i am looking forward to going back to college tomorrow to see my friends and just generally have something to do ! I do not look forward to the stresses this college year brings :( things like the stress of applying for university,the interviews that will come with that and this year will be a lot of college work ! Hopefully our assignments will be good :)
Today i wore my LBD from Topshop and teamed it with my new cardigan from Primark which i love ! Its perfect for the coming winter as it is so comfortable and warm and i just love the colours ! It was also really cheap at only £15 when something similar in Topshop would cost around £50.
In my last post i mentioned my dilemma between two dresses from Evans ! Thanks to everyone who commented it was a really hard choice but when i got to the store they didn't have the second dress in stock so i just tried the first which was what i think i was swaying towards anyway but when i tried it on it was such an awkward fit ! it was really baggy on top but tight on my legs. And just didn't look right :( A few shops later however i found another dress that struck my fancy. A Maroon coloured dress from Miss Selfridge for just £28

What do you think ?
